Roasted Bell Pepper & Tomato Spaghetti – Blogtober 24

Hey everyone! I thought I’d share another recipe with you today. As you know, I was feeling pretty unwell this time last week, so I wanted a dinner that required very little effort. Simple pasta with homemade sauce did just the trick. 

To start, I whacked the oven on at 200 celsius. Then I chopped three bell peppers in half, cutting out the stem and seeds and rubbing olive oil into it before placing on a baking tray. I also threw some whole cherry tomatoes on there too and seasoned with salt and pepper (just for fun!) 


I left these in the oven for about 45 minutes, until the skins were completely blistered and blackened. 


After 5 minutes of cooling, I peeled off the skins from the peppers, chopped roughly and added to the food blender with the tomatoes. In hindsight, I really wish I had also roasted some onion to put into the sauce – next time I will! I think red onion would be best for a sweeter sauce. 


After blitzing to a paste, I added about 220ml of double cream (basically, we had some leftover cream from my boyfriend’s delicious carbonara), so I just put the rest of the pot into the sauce. Be careful when you blend it, I stopped watching and accidentally whipped the cream a little…


It melted down a bit when I warmed the sauce up in a pan, but was a bit curdled. However – still yummy! Meanwhile, I cooked fresh spaghetti (4 mins in boiling water) and added the sauce. 

Finally, I grated some Parmesan on top and hey presto! 

Enjoy!

  1. This looks absolutely delicious! Also, well done you on getting so far with Blogtober, it’s so hard for me to post every few days sometimes, so I can’t imagine what it’s like to post every single day for a month! Loving the posts though and going to have a good old rummage through some more 😀 thanks for sharing xx
